A Local Approach to Gardening

One way to approach gardening is to think as locally as possible. If seeking to live locally, you may find yourself using local materials, saving seeds, planting your yard space with the crops of the food you eat, using homemade tools and other equipment, composting all your kitchen scraps to make fertilizer for your yard, and controlling weeds and insects using local preparations and techniques.

I donít do everything local, but I seek to as much as I can.
